Alex Balkwill, Ultimate Explorer - NZ's Top Rated Adventure Tour, 2019

28 days is a long time to spend with strangers. I couldn't have imagined it going so well. The people, the energy, jokes and activities were unreal! The was a trip of a lifetime.

Juliya Boyko, Ultimate Explorer - NZ's Top Rated Adventure Tour, 2019

Highly recommend, loved it! Just wish I could have stayed longer. Great people and great fun.

Sally Croker, Northern Light North Island Tour, 2019

The difference between a so-so trip versus an outstanding trip is all the little details. Flying Kiwi did an amazing job of handling all the big AND small things, so I could relax and enjoy the trip.

Justin Peckner, Hot Rocks New Zealand North Island Tour, 2019

Travelling with Flying Kiwi was so much better than expected. I've had a great time! The enthusiasm of the guides was great and very motivating to ensure we didn't miss anything. A truly action packed adventure!

Stephanie Child, Northern Wanderer North Island Tour, 2019

Easily the best trip I've been on. Not just for the itinerary but also the company I had going on this trip.

Balaji, Summer Blast South Island Tour, 2019

The trip was just amazing. I was always fun with the guides and the people on tour. Everything was well organised. Food was good, always enough and healthy. Frankie and Robbie John have both amazing personalities. Both guides really cared about everyone and tried to solve problems so that everyone can have a great time.

Alina Kowatskitsch, Ultimate Explorer - NZ's Top Rated Adventure Tour, 2019

I loved it and would do it all again. It's a unique experience and everyone I met on the trip was amazing. I'll be coming back for a trip to the South Island.

Michelle Leung, Northern Wanderer North Island Tour, 2019

Brilliant value for money! Great, welcoming tour guides. Loved all the incredible places we visited and stayed at. An unforgettable experience.

James Mcarthure, Ultimate Explorer - NZ's Top Rated Adventure Tour, 2019

Flying Kiwi has been a great experience. The organisation each day, the effortless (seemingly) ability to keep to schedule meant it was a stress free experience. I have seen the places I wanted to see and more and will highly recommend.

Caroline Woodhouse, Ultimate Explorer - NZ's Top Rated Adventure Tour, 2019

I've spend over a year of my life travelling, usually solo and this is my favorite 4 weeks.

Jen Galvin, Ultimate Explorer - NZ's Top Rated Adventure Tour, 2019

Such an amazing way to see New Zealand and do so many fun activities. Becca was such a great guide and always made sure we knew what was coming up the next day. What activities we could do and making amazing meals! The best 4 weeks with a great group of people from all over the world.

Abbie Foster, Ultimate Explorer - NZ's Top Rated Adventure Tour, 2019

I cannot praise highly enough the experience I had on the trip. NZ is a beautiful country and I fell the trip has done it justice. Aaron and Becca were excellent - Aaron was a great driver, very steady and smooth ride in the bus. Becca was an excellent cook and generally fab. Both always approachable and hard working.

Helena Hughes, Ultimate Explorer - NZ's Top Rated Adventure Tour, 2019

The experience was great, Becca was amazing! Booked 4 days and stayed 25! I honestly loved the tour.
